Vi­vian Dsena doesn’t get a ‘kick’ by read­ing sto­ries about him

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment - Shreya Mukher­jee

Ac­tor Vi­vian Dsena (right) shot to in­stant star­dom when he por­trayed the role of Ab­hay (a vam­pire) in the show Pyaar Kii Ye Ek Ka­haani, a rip-off of pop­u­lar Hol­ly­wood film se­ries, the Twi­light saga. The ac­tor then went on to do suc­cess­ful shows such as Mad­hubala - Ek Ishq Ek Junoon, fol­lowed by a great stint on re­al­ity shows in­clud­ing Jha­lak Dikhhla Jaa 8 and Kha­tron Ke Khi­ladi. Though fans love to watch him on TV, Vi­vian says he’s more of a pri­vate per­son and doesn’t en­joy go­ing out much.

“I’m a fam­ily guy. The time that I spend with my mother is the most pre­cious time for me. I feel what­ever pub­lic­ity I’m get­ting is enough. I don’t think I should go out of the way to in­ter­act with the me­dia. I don’t get a kick by read­ing too many sto­ries about me. I pre­fer to be vis­i­ble for my work be­cause I feel, if you are good at your job, au­di­ence will re­spect you,” says the ac­tor, who avoids the me­dia glare and be­lieves that be­ing too avail­able may end up cir­cu­lat­ing in­cor­rect in­for­ma­tion.

Be­sides act­ing, Vi­vian also be­lieves in do­ing so­cial work but he doesn’t wish to make any noise about it. “It’s my job to stand by those who need help. As a re­spon­si­ble cit­i­zen, it’s one of my pri­or­i­ties. But I don’t show off. I do it silently.”
